Is this suitable for use to recharge a Westinghouse iGen 160s Portable Power Station?

Asked by Wildflower64 October 20, 2020

Answers

Yes & no. Firstly, “overkill” comes to mind. It will adapt to your DC Input (connectors not included). Secondly, you’ll need a charge controller so the 100watt panel doesn’t cook that tiny battery. In all honesty, you’re better off with a smaller panel in, perhaps, the 10-25watt range.

Asked by Lisa September 20, 2020

it's simple, but seems complicated. here is the formula, watts = volts times amps or (v * a) so if your toaster is 1500 watts, then you need 1500 watts of slar panels (15) to run it, you might need up to twice that much to turn it on as it will spike when first turned on, this is most relevant on anything with a motor. BUT, that is not how to properly use a solar system. You'll need batteries, this buffers the consumption, so ets say you need 1500 watts for 1 hour. You can charge up batteries for 15 hours at 100 watts, or you can charge then for 7.5 hours at 200 watts (2 panels), or about 4 hours at 400watts (4 panels). So the real concern would be with the batteries and they are rated in Amp hours. 100 amp hours means you can draw 100 amps for 1 hour. BUT you only want to use the battery to 50% capacity so it doesn't get damaged. so a 100AH battery is good for 50AH of usage.. since watts are volts times amps: to run 1500 watts for 1 hour you need (1500watts/120volts = 12.5 amps) then multiply that by 2 to protect the batteries and you can run that toaster for 2 hours on one 100AH battery. let's say you get 10 hours of direct strong sunlight, a 100 watt panel puts out 5.5 amps... so that becomes 5.5AH so you can make 55 AH of power, just enough to charge up that one battery.. So now that we got the math out of the way.. Your gonna need: at least 5-8 panels, 2-4 100AH batteries (deep cycle marine is good) a solar charge controler to handle at least 44 amps (two 30 amp controlers in paralel will work). and at least 10 guage wire (10AWG) to connect everything up... Oh and a pure sinewave inverter at at least 3000watts (double what the highest rated draw is because of the powerup surge), that will require a minimum of 2 gauge (2AWG) wires from the batteries to the inverter, I would make sure the inverter has protection built in so you do not need a ridiculously large fuse for protection.. and i'd add a couple fuses in between the panels and the chargers as well for safety. 60amp blade fuses should work (2 30amp in parralel).

Can i use this to charge my Baldr 330 portable power station?

Asked by Eve September 9, 2020

Answers

I don't know anything about the Baldr, but this panel provides roughly 20 volts, no load, and can provide about 5 amps (that's how they get the "100 watts")

Asked by Timmer July 19, 2020

Answers

Yes, they both make power, just at different rates! Mono is typically more efficient at solar conversion, but poly can deliver longer life from what I have read online! I would however use only 12V with 12V, as opposed to using a 12V and 18V or 24V panel.....

Does this come with cables to hook to another panel

Asked by schubiee July 11, 2020

Answers

No. You will need a “combiner” to connect to additional panels - it has two standard MC-4 (via my memory) connectors. Series for voltage or parallel for amperage - both are easy-peasy.

Asked by Jbrede May 3, 2020

Answers

My question to you would be do you plan to have light all night or shut down after 5 hours? the 100 watt panel you have in the question will provide on a good day rule of thumb 5 hours. I am only getting 62 watts from the panels unless you have a very clear sky. The atmosphere does degrade the output somewhat. So 5 hours times 60 watts gives you 300 watt hours. You will need a MPPT( Maximum Power Point Tracker) solar charge controller to get the most from your panel. The charge controller should also be able to equalize the battery (means over charge the battery approximately every 30 days to stir up the electrolyte.) with 300 watt hours means at 12 volts with 100% conversion you will need a 25AH hour battery I would suggest making it 4 times that size to help with cloudy days and shorter days but still capitalize on summer days. Gulf cart Batteries are 6 volt 200AH but you would need 2. If you get a smart enough charge controller it should prevent the battery from being discharged to much incase of many cloudy days. Some batteries like car batteries don't like to be discharged very deep do choose wisely.

A bit more expensive than some of the cheaper made ones out there but this panel is a lot more durable and the customer service could not be beaten. Every question I had about the Grape Solar System starting from purchasing the 50 watt starter kit to adding on a 40 amp charge controller and two 100w panels and every step of the way Steve at customer service answered my email the day I wrote it to them.

I used two of these to replace two 60 Watt modules on my RV when I replaced the RV roof about two years ago. This is matched with a Morningstar 15 Amp PWM charge controller, two group 27 size 220 Amp-hr deep cycle batteries and a 1100 Watt sine wave inverter. The system works great. Note that the system does not produce the rated output. That is typical of solar modules. The peak output is about 120 Watts. But it produces plenty of energy for my needs for dry camping without a generator. I got the Z mounting brackets then decided that would not work on the RV. I needed a system that would allow me to remove the modules for maintenance. I cut some aluminum angle and made my own Z brackets that bolt together so I could remove the modules by removing easily accessible bolts. See photos.

Good price for 100 watt panels. Easy to install, but I wish I could have found reasonably priced mounts that would have allowed tilting. Time will tell how they hold up. So far they are working as expected.

I made 3 portable cases out of 6 grape solar 100 watt panels and hooked them up to two 40 amp pwm grape solar controllers. Then built a 6V 245 AH x2 12v in series then tied 3 in parallel totaling 735 AH 12v bank. Hooked up a 6,000 watt 12,000 watt max inverter. I put electronics in my truck tools box and hardwired a 30 amp RV RECEPTICLE BOX into inverter and mounted it to tool box and put the 6 6v batteries into an army trunk with vents custom drilled around the side top. And plugged in the panels and RV worked awesome. I will upload pictures if I can.

I was very pleased when I pulled the two 100 watt grape panels out of their boxes. They were well packed, no damage at all. I hooked them up to a Victron 75/15 controller and once the sun came out from behind the clouds they were producing 210 watts of power. I made them into a portable suitcase and as they were so inexpensive thought I would need to beef up the frames. That wasn't needed, they are well made units. Much better than I expected for $89. I have had them now for two weeks powering my RV from Bulk to Float each day.
